Senior Lecturer in Probability

The University of Manchester


I am currently a Senior Lecturer in Probability in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Manchester. I obtained my Bachelor’s (2005) and Master’s (2008) degrees at Tsinghua University, and I obtained my Doctorate (2010) at the University of Paris-Sud Orsay. Then I held a Newton International Fellowship at the University of St Andrews for two years (2011-2012), followed by a Lecturer position at the same place before moving to Manchester (2013).
